Dysmenorrhea: What you describe is not common, but some women do have severe pain and headaches with their periods. You may have endometriosis, which is a condition that makes periods very painful. You may want to consider using a birth control method that will stop you from having periods, and likely these symptoms will also stop. good luck!
